Alton Webteam: December 2016
A fund has been opened to pay for acoustic tiles on the hall ceiling to reduce the noise levels there. When multiple conversations are taking place, as at Sunday morning coffee, it's difficult to follow what's being said. In addition, because of the difficulty in being heard during games and activities, noise levels rise and interfere with proper communication during BB and GB sessions.
The projected cost of the project is £6,000 and because there are other urgent calls on church finances, it's been agreed that the money for the acoustic tiles should be raised from donations. Currently £1,887.50 has been raised. If we can raise the remainder within the next few months the work can be done while the quoted price is still valid.
If you'd like to make a contribution, please put a cheque or cash into an envelope marked 'Hall Acoustic Tile Fund' and put it into the collection bag or hand it into the church office. Cheques should be made payable to 'Alton Methodist Church'.
For the latest news on the progress of the fund-raising please see the chart on the hall noticeboard.
